These flowers are starting to be more fun than when I started. Some of them still look intimidating, but I will work at my own pace.
Pretty block Janet. You're doing a good job.
They're coming right along, looking good!
jan, you're doing just fine, i like this block. when you get 6 or so done, you will be very surprised at how spectacular they look together.
I am really liking the outcomes.Letting the needle do more of the turning on its own instead of forcing it with finger nail or thumb nail and it has become fun. DH has fallen in love with them. When I told him I had plans to finish it for Christmas for DIL he had a huge frown and sighed. He asked if I could be talked into making something else for her and keeping this one. Sounds like a plan to me.
jan, years ago i took a class on a water color quilt. now, mind you, i had made many many quilts over the years and i had several quilts on each of the four beds in the house. i came home with this quilt, and sam said, " this is the prettiest quilt you've ever made, it's beautiful". kinda off hand i told him since he liked it so much it could be his. he got a funny look on his face and told me it was the first quilt i had ever given him. i thought all the quilts i had made were ours, i guess i forgot to mention that to him. after all these years, it is still one of his favorites, and he refers to it as "my quilt"
Very pretty block.
lots of love
Jan, great job!

DH is overly sensitive about things being "equal" or him "being part" of the family. So after I made the 3 quilts for Christmas last year for our children and the 2 for the grand daughters, I knew he needed to be in the line up pretty quickly. I am doing the paper piecing compass blocks and gathering what I need to do Harry Potter. He is a HUGE Harry Potter fan so I thought, this is the one. I will still do it and it will still be his, but he is so ecstatic about each of the Wildflower blocks, I think that is the one. I am going to see if I can finish it for his July Birthday. Not sure that I can and keep the quality of work. Maybe he will get 2 quilts for Christmas! Funny how they don't think the ones on our beds are theirs. He has even picked out the fabric for most of them. Men, one of the most fun challenges in life. LOL
